Skysports.com understands Motherwell winger Chris Humphrey has won his first call-up to the Jamaica national team.

The Reggae Boyz have moved to fend off interest from Scotland to bring Humphrey into the international set-up.

Humphrey, who was born in Jamaica, is eligible to play for Scotland due to the fact his mother was born in Kilmarnock and Craig Levein was thought to be considering calling the former Shrewsbury man after being impressed by his performances this season.

The 22-year-old has been earning rave reviews and he has played a key role in helping Motherwell reach the Scottish Cup final against Celtic.

A number of Premier League clubs, including Liverpool, Bolton and Birmingham are all thought to be tracking the jet-heeled wide-man.

Honour

Humphrey is delighted to win his first call-up with Jamaica for their training camp in Brazil ahead of next month's Gold Cup.

"It is a huge honour to get a call-up as every player wants to play international football," Humphrey told skysports.com.

"Even though I also qualify for Scotland, Jamaica were the first to pursue me and I am looking forward to linking up with the squad.

"However, at the minute my main focus is on this weekend's Scottish Cup final against Celtic."
